Health care for the military community overseas

Around the world our health care staff provide health services that specialise in patient-focused care that meets the needs of military personnel and their families.

Make sure you talk to somebody about how you're feeling. Don't put it off.

For British Forces Germany, and associated detachments in Southern Europe, Holland and Belgium, SSAFA provides high quality health services alongside our partners at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust. Our team includes general practitioners, nurses, midwives, health visitors and other professionals, dedicated to the physical and mental wellbeing of all stationed forces members and their families.


Across the rest of the world - Cyprus, Gibraltar, Brunei, Canada and Nepal - SSAFA provides local health services for military families. We are committed to developing innovative child and family services for the Forces community, including dietary health, community nursing and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
